I live in a fringe reception area so I haven't bothered with broadcast TV for years. Even in large urban areas that have adequate broadcast signal a huge number of people use cable or satellite. That means for most of us the deadline is a non-event.
I never have subscribed to any of the digital programming so I don't even need a converter box for cable. Of course if my cable company ever decides to stop sending analog programming I'll have to upgrade the TV.
Are thinking is this the reason you may finally get a new TV. -OR- continue to use the old one with the DTV converter box attached. Most new TV already are DTV capable but others just aren't. But, that may not be a problem for most cable or satelite subscribers. Any thoughts? -----Willy
